It was little orphan Annie who once said/sang "You're never fully dressed without a smile." Well, not according to Kanye West ... if you want to be cool, anyway.

It's no secret Yeezy doesn't smile often, like his wife Kim Kardashian. But now, Kanye has explained his often serious face in photos. According to Huffington Post, Yeezus was at The Daily Front Row's Fashion Los Angeles Awards, and explained the the reason for his non-smiling expression stems from a book he stumbled across from the 1800s.

According to Kanye, the book helped him realize that smiling just isn't "cool":

"I looked at all these people's photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren't smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, "Why you not smiling?" and I think, not smiling makes me smile ... When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling 'cause it just wouldn't look as cool."

Late last year, Mrs. West had revealed in an Instagram post that she doesn't smile often because it causes wrinkles. She wrote, "See I do smile... even laugh on occasion. Not too often though because it causes wrinkles."

Guess wrinkles aren't cool either? If anything, this just proves how perfect KimYe are together. Like wifey, like hubby.
